I'm truly thrilled about the signed print - I can't wait to frame it.

Last one before showtime - the Enterprise on an 80 pound pumpkin

I still need to finish up my pattern for the Forest Dragon, but I just stuck the Enterprise in my patterns directory if you're interested (fantasypumpkins/2009-patterns/). In all honesty, due to the extra time required to finish my dragon, I didn't have nearly enough time to do the world detail like I would have liked. Feel free to take and modify :)

And thanks to everyone for the sick comments :)

We still had decent turnout with the rain. Nothing like last year, but my sister-in-law counted up a good 500+ folks. I was actually pretty surprised considering the rotten weather.

Here's the rest of the carves in the last day or so:

My daughter (11) made a few:

And our original Bob the Blob turned into a literal blob in the heat of the garage so Sarah took a try:

She also did Hello Kitty:
